Erath High School Jr. Beta Club National and State Officers

Erath Middle School Jr. Beta History

By Ebrar Reaux

The Erath Middle School Jr. Beta Club was officially chartered on December 16, 1977.  Sue Butaud and Ebrar Reaux served as co-sponsors.  At the time, the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were part of Erath High School.  Mr. Robert Segura, Sr. was the Principal and Mr. Sterling Menard was the Assistant Principal in charge of the elementary school.  The first president of the club was Monica Granger.  Erath High School was an accredited member of Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  One of the recommendations made by a Peer Review Team during a 3 day visit to the school was to provide more opportunities for junior high students to participate in clubs.  At the time, Ebrar had a friend named Elizabeth Bienvenu who taught at Loreauville High School and was sponsor of that school’s Jr. Beta Club.  In a conversation about the SACS recommendation, Elizabeth suggested to Ebrar that Erath High look at chartering a Jr. Beta Club.  The National Beta Club is a non-profit organization that promotes academic excellence, character, leadership and service.  Ebrar shared the suggestion with Sue Butaud and the two felt the Beta Club would be an excellent organization for jr. high school students to be associated. Upon receiving approval from the school administration, the National Beta Club Office in Spartanburg, South Carolina was contacted and the appropriate application was filed for a charter for the Erath Jr. High School Jr. Beta Club.  The club would later become known as the Erath Elementary Jr. Beta Club with Mr. Donald Primeaux as its Principal and then eventually as the Erath Middle School Jr. Beta School with Mr. Ebrar Reaux as its Principal (1989 – 2005). The Principal of EMS at that time was Mrs. Lynn Guidry Moss (2005 to 2014). Sandy Huval was Principal from 2014-2015. The current Principal is Wendy Suire Stoute (2015-Present).
